Calling it finished. I added more detail in the foreground, amongst the shrubberies, and glazed over the darker areas with some alizarin crimson. I tried to build up a simple foreground/mid-ground/background, but they’re not as distinct from each other as I would like. Have a look at the previous post for in progress photos. I welcome all the feedback :).
Lately I’ve been getting requests for landscape paintings, but they’re tough for me. Conveying distance and deep space isn’t easy. Time to practice. Here are some in-progress photos of my current attempt. It’s not yet finished; I’ll post the final version soon. -oil on canvas.
Take a look at Matt’s paintings on Matt Sterbenz Fine Art. He and I were fellow painting students at ASU a year ago. See for yourself what a fantastic painter he is, and how well he explains his process.
He is presently trying to fulfill a challenge to paint 100 tiny (5″x7″) landscapes. I might like to take on such a challenge :). Stay tuned ~
